Cannot import .avi (divx) files into MyDvd 9


Cryosis

Question

I cannot get MyDvd 9 to import .avi files, more specifically the divx and xvid formats. I tried this solution here but it did not seem to work for me. When I try to add the avi file there is a red cross symbol in place of the usual thumbnail. I'm getting really frustrated because these formats are under the list of supported formats and older versions of the software have no problem importing these.

I've tried this more than three times by repairing Roxio and retrying the fix. I've followed the instructions exactly but each time it fails to work. The only thing I can think of is that I had originally purchased the basic version of MyDVD 9, installed it but when I realised that it was not compatable with Divx I upgraded to the Suite version, I uninstalled MyDVD 9 and installed the suite version. Could there be some file or registry entry that is from the basic edition that is continuing to reak havoc.

I'm wondering now if you should try removing divx, uninstall (clean uninstall) EMC9 then install EMC9 and see if that fixes it. A bit of work, I know but I'm not sure how else to clean this up or if it will even work.

I'm having this same problem as well.

 

I can follow the instructions given in the supposed "fix" but the problem is that when I reinstall Roxio, I don't get DivXDec.ax in my System32 folder, there's just nothing there with that name. So I still have divxdec.ax on my desktop, as per the instructions, but there I'm left dangling a bit.

 

I think this may be a Vista thing because the instructions are clearly for XP. Some of it doesn't really correspond at all and you have to do a bit of lateral thinking.

The problem you mention is almost always fixed by doing what is suggested in the link you say you tried. Are you sure you did this correctly? It does work. If so, you can try installing the latest divx and xvid codecs then fixing divx as mentioned. Might be some corruption causing the problem.

 

I had exactly the same problem a while back.

Tried the fix detailed in the link but to no avail.

I downloaded the latest DIV X and X VID codecs then forgot about trying the fix again.

Couple of weeks later I was advised to try a "Repair Install" for another problem.

After the repair I found that EMC 9 recognised DIV X and X VID files.

 

Don't know how or why it worked but I haven't had the DIV X problem since.

Brian,yours was probably the same thing.At first you didn't have the codecs,when you put those in then Divx broke EMC9.When you did the repair to EMC9 it then fixed the problem the same as the fix in the link would have done.

My experience has been that is you see the circle with the red line thru it then it's a codec problem

As someone who had this problem 3 different times, I agree with Terry. Somehow, someway, whether by user or auto, the divx files are changed and this fix (or workaround) did the trick each time. You have to make sure the files are registered and follow the instructions exactly.
